Baltimore Bars Offer Free Booze When Orioles' Chris Davis Gets His First Hit

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Looks like everyone is waiting in anticipation for Chris Davis' first hit.

So much so, some Baltimore bars are offering free alcohol when the first baseman gets out of his 0-for-28 slump.

Lee's Pint and Shell posted Wednesday, it'll host a two-hour open bar for anybody who's at their tavern when the game starts -- if the slugger gets a hit.

More Chris Davis news:

Power Plant Live! announced Tuesday that it would giveaway 1,000 orange crushes on Friday in honor of Davis' first hit.

Looks like people have a reason to cheer for Davis in Baltimore.

The O's first baseman hasn't recorded a hit since September 14, 2018, when he knocked a double off of White Sox pitcher James Shields.

The Orioles still owe Davis around $92 million in guaranteed money due to the contract extension that he signed in the offseason of 2015. That contract will be paid out in deferred payments through the 2037 season.
